Sometimes, it's not easy being a comic blogger. Some days, you read comic after comic, and there's just nothing to make fun of.
And then along comes Adventure Comics #205. It's a story so full of snarky goodness, I can't put it all in one day's post.
You know you're looking at fertile ground when they pull out the old doppelganger plot device. You know the shtick - similar powers, only the new guy is all mysterious and eventually reveals himself to be evil, which always surprises the protagonist even though a new guy crossing your paths with similar powers is never anything but evil.
Um.... new guy? I don't know how they do it where you're from, but you're flying awfully close to Superboy. Let's leave enough room in between you for the Holy Spirit, what say?
Love, the Comics Code Authority
MOM! DAD? WHAT THE HELL? Feel free to blurt out my secret identity to a total stranger! When I'm wearing my super suit, I'm SUPERBOY! How hard is that? You ruin EVERYTHING!
Is it just me, or is Superboy looking a little mooney-eyed at the new kid?
Nope. It wasn't just me. He and I are almost like brothers! Or something! It's like on the Brady Bunch where you were just waiting for the moment Greg and Marcia would start making out.
Don't want to lose the secret ID? That ship sailed about three pages ago, Clark!
I hate to leave you with a cliff-hanger, but..... TO BE CONTINUED!
